Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection is a remaster of three games starring the super ninja whose adventure began in the 1990s in the form of arcade games on SNES or Gameboy platforms. Master Collection includes remastered versions of remakes of these games, such as Ninja Gaiden Sigma (2007), Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 (2009) and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge (2012).

Plot

The action takes place in a fictional universe of another Koei Tecmo game - Dead or Alive. The plot of each part in Master Collection has not changed in relation to what we had a chance to experience in remakes.

In the three-part series we once again have the opportunity to play the role of a ninja - Ryu Hayabusa, a descendant of the dragon clan, whose story begins with setting out on a mission to find a lost blade and avenge the murdered members of his clan. However, he's not the only playable character in the series, as there are several over the course of the three games, such as the agile and quick Ayane, or Ryu's younger sister Momiji.

Mechanics

Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection once again takes us on an arcade adventure observed from a third-person perspective, during which our heroes will face off against encountered enemies, both human and supernatural. Depending on the character, wielding a katana, naginata or kitetsu we can derive spectacular combos. Skirmishes here are dynamic and often fought with several opponents at once. There are also demanding clashes with bosses, which require the use of different tactics to kill.

In addition to combat, exploration of various locations, from cities, temples or clan fortresses full of murderous traps, plays a large role in the game.

Technical aspects

Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection features improved graphics, with higher resolution textures and better character and environment models.

Master Collection has also been enriched with most of the additional content available from previous installments, and Team Ninja developers decided to collaborate with Nioh 2, so owners of both games can enjoy the bonus costume option.
